Report: Bulls swingman Ronnie Brewer pleads not-guilty to February DUI
Bulls swingman Ronnie Brewer plead not-guilty this week to driving under the influence after he was pulled over in February during a traffic stop in Beverly Hills, California, according to Reuters.
Brewer, 29, plead not-guilty to one count of driving under the influence and another for driving with a blood-alcohol content of .08 or greater; according to the report citing the prosecution, Brewer had a BAC of .15 percent when he was stopped by Beverly Hills police on Feb. 19.
The attorney entered the pleas for Brewer on Wednesday because the NBA player was not present. He could be present in court for his next hearing scheduled for July 15.
After being named Mr. Arkansas Basketball in 2003, Brewer was drafted No. 14 overall by the Jazz in the 2006 NBA Draft and spent four years in Utah. He went on to play for the Grizzlies, Knicks, Bulls, Thunder and Rockets, returning to Chicago this year for his second career stint with the team.
